Everton Offered Chelsea a Huge Sum for Diego Costa
Now back in the bosom of the club he really loved, it`d be churlish not to wish Diego Costa all the best and thank him for his efforts in a Chelsea shirt.
We also know that football is the kind of game that has a habit of throwing reunions up, I`d say that, someday, it`s fairly certain that our paths will meet again and I`d imagine the reception Diego Costa gets could be a little mixed.
However, before he departed for pastures that are hardly new, speculation was rife that Everton were interested in the want-away striker.
Lurking in the pages of the Spanish news vehicle Marca today, is the inference that Everton were serious when it came to wanting the player.
Our referenced source is suggesting that Everton offered Chelsea £66 million for the 28-year-old, plus a bonus.
Quite what the bonus was we`re not sure, but with Diego Costa having set his heart on a return to Atletico Madrid, a move to Everton was never going to happen was it!
